Every now and then, I discover a sentence or paragraph in a book that causes an explosion in my spirit. It’s as though the black ink used to print the text has miraculously turned into a red letter, “thus-saith-the-Lord” word to me. I experienced this in a book that I’m reading right now In Light of Eternity, the Life of Leonard Ravenhill written by Mack Tomlinson. Here are a couple of quotes that will cause you to stop to meditate upon their significance and then hopefully write into your journal.
“I’m believing that I’m going to see a Pentecost that will out-Pentecost Pentecost.”
A little later in the book, Tomlinson shared this quote by Ravenhill:
“Do the Pentecostals look back with shame as they remember when they dwelt across the theological tracks, but with the glory of the Lord in their midst, when they had a normal church life, which meant nights of prayers, followed by signs and wonders, miracles, and genuine gifts of the Holy Ghost? When they were not clock watchers, and their meetings lasted for hours, saturated with holy power? Have we no tears for these memories, or shame that our children know nothing of such power?”
I can’t add anything to these quotes. I’ll ask the Holy Spirit to amplify these thoughts within your spirit. Selah.
